Our longest hotel stays in New Zealand was in Queenstown, a total of 6 days 5 nights. Located right in front of the beautiful Lake Wakatipu. Due to the bad weather, our Milford sound day trip was cancelled, hence, we a day to explore the town and had a good rest in the hotel.
We chose a slower route to travel from Christchurch to Queenstown, instead of traveling via plane, we took a tour bus. The itinerary we had for the day, our tour bus made a stop at Mount Cook Village which is at the bottom of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, the highest mountain and the longest glacier in New Zealand, and we had a few quick stops where we are able to take the picturesque photos along our way to Queenstown.
